As of noon Monday, Saline vs. Detroit Cass Tech, the defending Division 1 state champion, had 283 votes, while River Rouge at Father Gabriel Richard had 105.
But Irish fans have time to mount a comeback: this week’s poll will stay open until 6 p.m Tuesday. Fans can vote once an hour until then.
Both teams will be playing for the first regional titles in school history this weekend. The Hornets will play Friday at 7 p.m., while Gabriel Richard will play Saturday at 1 p.m. Both teams will play at home.
Regional finals double as the state quarterfinals, two steps away from the state finals, which will be held at Ford Field in Detroit over Thanksgiving weekend.
